OT/PIOG: Movies for Mommy?

I have the week off and Netflix is calling my name. Any good movie recommendations?

I like scary movies. But creepy/thriller type horror, not gory slashers. 

I tend to prefer more offbeat movies.

Right now, I've been watching Dexter on Netflix. I also like the Lost Girl series, and it also just came out with a new season.

If you really want to stay in front of the TV all week, you could try Dr Who. The first season is pretty bad, but oh boy, does the writing improve from there! I noticed that Neil Gaiman has helped write a lot of the better episodes. To be honest, I found the start of a couple of the Dr Who episodes to be suspenseful, almost boarder-line scary (like the Blink and Are You My Mummy ones).

I don't watch a ton of horror movies, but I like really good ones that aren't slashers too. So I'm interested to see where this list goes.

Month and months ago, hubby and I watched Stake Land, and it was a lot better than what I expected. It wasn't scary though, IMO, but it's classified as a horror because of the vampires in it.

I saw The Awakening, and it was kind of boring. I stopped it a couple times, but eventually finished it.

I have Bag of Bones in my queue. Has anyone seen that? Is it good?

I have the very last episode of Dexter sitting in my DVD player waiting for me. I just can't bring myself to watch it. I will miss him so much :(

My brother keeps telling me to try Dr. Who. I know I would like it and there's lots of seasons to watch. He could replace the hole left by my buddy Dexter. LOL

I love Neil Gaiman.

Netflix keeps telling me I would like that one but it does a little slow.

That one is on Sci Fi channel all the time. I really like it. I love post apocalypse stuff. 

Have you seen The Road?

No idea I don't watch horror movies. But that sounds like a nice week off to me :-)

No cable here, so I didn't know SyFy picked up Stake Land. I know they picked up Lost Girl and Continuum from Canada (both shows I discovered through Netflix), and I know they made a US version of Being Human (which I think sucks compared to the UK Being Human). 

I haven't seen The Road. But I just added it to my instant queue. 

If you love the post-apocalyptic genre, I'm surprised you don't watch anime. There are a lot of post-apocalyptic animes. There are some pretty decent horror animes too. I prefer the darker anime. The two Vampire Hunter D movies and Ninja Scroll are three anime movies that got me hooked.

It is very slow. I'm not even sure why I finished it....LOL
